"Japanese people love pizza. The three most popular delivery restaurants that duke it out for the country's pizza pie preferences are Napoli Pizza, Pizza Hut, and Domino's.

But as of today, Domino's might get more business thanks to an amazingly odd discount campaign. You can get 25 percent off your delivery if you have one of the following:

Facial hair
Ponytails
Four kanji characters in your last name
Twins
1980s clothing, like shoulder pads or a skin-tight mini-skirt
A high school uniform
A parrot
A dorky t-shirt
A rural Japanese dialect

If you have all of these, you can get half off your order."

AND EVEN MORE.

Zombie maids. Dead people drawing hearts on your omelets with bloo... I mean ketchup.

I saw so many funny food related news. I wanted to share. :3

Dear Japan,
I love you because you are ridiculous and dorky. Some days I ask whats wrong with you, but then I ask myself why I'm smiling so hard and I'm so proud.

Your nerdy follower,
Mari

I have more than half of these, if you can count that you are a twin. I also learned a northern dialect when I lived in Morioka.

Fun

Darn. The price for the pencil cases on eBay are a little too steep for me to get on a whim. Maybe I can convince my fiancee to include one on the gift registry...

Those cases are very cool. My wife has something similar from Jamaica, but it's a coin purse and it's fairly cartoonish...those are pretty darn realistic.
